Vic Firth

The Vic Firth Company, setting the standard for percussion since its inception in 1963, is supporting outdoor bucket drumming workshops in plazas and parks across 12 cities for Make Music Day 2017.

All percussionists who attend – kids and adults, professionals and amateurs, well-heeled and homeless – will be handed a pair of Vic Firth sticks and invited to make music together. The events will range from structured classes to free-flowing bucket drumming circles, according to the concept of each local organizer.

The goal is to spread the message that to make music, all you need is a beat in your heart… and a pair of sticks.
